5th anniversary

Today is a special day: it’s this blog’s 5th anniversary, which, in blog years, must be around 180, a ripe old age which it would have never reached if it hadn’t been for all the great comments it gets and which motivate me to carry on, so thank you to all my readers. Really.
Perhaps more excitingly, it’s also the day I pack my bags for a holiday in California, Utah, Colorado and Nevada. No wonder I’m struggling to concentrate and finish all my translation work. See you soon!

    Congratulations, Céline! You’ve certainly come a long way with this blog. It has been a great source of inspiration and information for all of us.

    Brilliant stuff Céline. I’m a recent subscriber to your blog and I don’t work in your industry, but the quality of your writing and the interesting topics you cover keep me coming back for more!

    Enhorabuena, Céline. Espero que sigas escribiendo mucho tiempo más y que disfrutes de tus vacaciones.

    Congrats, Céline!
    I just found your site today! Lucky me! I run a site on Brazilian culture and the Portuguese language which I included in the comment info. In the coming months, I will be doing a certification program for PT>EN translation so I’m hoping to learn from your site. Have fun in California! I can’t say the weather is the best right now (I’m looking out my window here in Northern California) but perhaps it will clear up for your arrival.

    Congratulations, Céline. Quite a milestone.

    Congratulations, Céline !
    I discovered your blog about three years ago, and it was really the spark that made me want to be a translator. I’m now happily studying translation, and looking forward to working in the field. So I guess a big “Thank you” is in order…and keep up the good work !

    Au plaisir de te lire des années encore… 🙂

    A little late, but felicitations from me as well. Enjoy your vacation!

    ¡Felicidades! I wish I had seen this earlier, as you mention you will be going to Nevada. Will you also be coming to my town, Las Vegas? I’d love to have a drink with a fellow translator and show you around Vegas. Drop me a line if you still read this before your trip!

    Congratulations! Hope to read more 5 years from now.
